This might be strange, but this expensive list includes 10/10 of La liga players; wait! Not just La Liga players, only Barcelona and Real Madrid. Down is the Biggest Release-Clauses.
10. Philippe Coutinho – £355m
On Saturday evening, Barcelona confirmed they completed the signing of Liverpool’s midfielder Philippe Coutinho for a staggering £145million; an official statement on their website that the Brazilian’s buy-out clause will be a whopping £355million.
6. Dani Ceballos –£443m
The 20-year-old former Real Betis midfielder has shown every sign that he could turn into a very special player and those at the Bernabeu have sought to ensure no other club even thinks of luring Ceballos away; he’s now on a whopping £443m.
6. Toni Kroos –£443m
To get the man himself out of Bayern Munich was not easy. The deal included a lucrative €300m release clause that matched Messi’s at the time. The first German player to win the Champions League three times is now on a £443m release clause.
6. Luka Modric –£443m
This is no surprise as Luka Modric’s release clause from Tottenham in 2012 was set at £443m; Modric has since signed an extension but had to believe Real Madrid never increased nor reduced the buy-out fee.
4. Marco Asensio –£620m
The Spaniard has impressed so far this term after breaking into the fold under Zinedine Zidane. He is currently contracted until 2020. Real were concerned his release clause was too low. And now they are set to increase that clause to a staggering £620m according to AS.
